Our Safety Protocols

We have always adhered to the strictest of infection control practices and guidelines by the California Department of Public Health, American Dental Association (ADA), the U.S.Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the California Dental Association (CDA) and the Occupational Safety and Health Administration(OSHA) to prevent cross contamination, and continuously monitor updates on any new rulings or guidance they may issue to help reduce the spread of infectious diseases such as the coronavirus or the flu.

Please note that while CDC and the California Department of Public Health mandates on indoor masking may have changed, we strongly recommend that our patients wear a mask while in the waiting and check out areas for everyone's good health.

Dress warm if possible. Our office is now maintained at cooler temperatures to enable our HVAC safety, air purifiers and for adequate ventilation.



What Makes Our Office Safe


Our unique office and building design helped us stay safe and free of outbreaks during the COVID pandemic.
Each of our individual and private treatment rooms has a door and walls to separate it from other areas to reduce aerosol distribution. 
We continuously update our infection control training for all our staff and have implemented additional measures to our Infection and Illness Prevention Plan, since the COVID pandemic. As your dental providers, we too want to stay safe and ensure your safety through our symptom screening protocols. 
We closely monitor the activities of the California Department of Public Health, the CDC, Occupational Health and Safety Association (OSHA), California Dental Association, the Dental Board of California and the American Dental Association, so that we are up to date with any new rulings or guidance they may issue for healthcare facilities and providers. We do this to make sure that our infection control procedures are current and adhere to each agencies’ recommendation.
